I have made it through Alpha!! Therefore, it is time for day: 36: Focus T25: Beta CORE CARDIO!
Rather than following the schedule, I am doing my own hybrid of Body Beast and Focus T25 (starting today).
The music changes from Alpha - it’s about to get iiiiiiiiiiiintense (or weirdly 60s/70s style). Tonia is, again, the modifier so follow her for the less intense moves.
Low switch kick
Double switch kick
‘This is beta so I’m goin’ a little bit harder on you and I want you to focus just a little harder’.
22:00 minute marker
'What did you focus on in Alpha? Whenever that knee comes about the waist what do you do? You tighten the core’.
19:55 minute mark
Twisting “X” lunge
Twist “X” deep lunge
“X” lunge touch shin
“X” lunge + touch floor
Well these suck.
18:00 minute marker
Demi squat walk
Deep squat walk
15:48 minute marker - working the core
Honestly - around this point - I had to take a few breather breaks.
This is feeling like leg day to me. Love this quote:
'I’m lookin’ at you. You stay there. I know it burns and it’s about to get a little bit tougher. But this I where the focus comes in. I love what I do and I love to inspire you and I love when you feel pain because I know you’re gonna look in the mirror tomorrow and you’re gonna feel absolutely amazing.’
This is a weird one and I think I tore up the carpet in my workout room a little bit. Hardwood might be beneficial for this twisting move.
13:46 minute marker: Burnout 1
'If you’re like - Shaun I’m tired - well guess what? It’s only 25 minutes and that’s why I call it a burnout’.
11:56 minute marker
Control hop side + side
Double hop rotation
'If your inner thighs aren’t burnin’ during this abductor movement then there’s a problem goin’ on, okay?’
9:51 minute marker
I took a few breaths. I am not ashamed. Sweat was in my eyes.
6:00 minute marker
3:50 minute marker: Burnout 2
Single hop rotation
Speed kick (L)
Speed kick (R)
Then, Shaun does a little pep talk into the camera….
1:49 minute marker
1:00 minute marker
'There’s a difference between a sprint and a body sprint. In a body sprint I’m askin’ you to move the arms and the legs forward and back’.
THEN…. this happens. :)
Cool down/Active stretching (2:30 minutes)
This should look familiar - it’s the same as in Alpha. I was so sweaty some of the moves (prayer) were hard to hold. Ew gross.
Things are orange rather than yellow - that’s worth mentioning. Orange means you’re MOVING ON BABY!
My legs were burning. Holy moly. I was sweating all over the place. By the time I took my HR monitor off, I burnt around 400 calories.
I think I am going to hear 'BURPEE’ in my sleep.
Scott (Shaun’s hubby) is in this video as well (I am thinking he will be in all of them) and is super neon-cute as always. I think I have a crush on their love story.
